A little over a year ago I had liposuction done. I went back in three months later and had the remainder fat removed due to the first time not being successful. Now that the swelling is gone and I am leaner... I notice a lot of dimpling in my abdomen. In have undergone 10 laser sessions that have not helped tighten skin or minimize internal scaring. Are there any other non surgical procedures that I can utilize to help the dimpling go away as well as tighten skin? Thank you!

Dimpling after liposuction
Correcting dimpling after liposuction takes careful planning -
- was too little fat removed in some areas
- is the skin itself loose
- is adherent scar the problem
- If there is scarring, is it in skin, fat or muscle.
- was too much fat removed in some areas
- Can the problem(s) be improved? If so, what is needed.
Problem analysis is crucial. Treatment depends on the problem.
Sit down with your plastic surgeon - or see a new one who should be a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon - to sort this out. Hopes this helps!
dimpling, uneveness and loose skin can result after the liposuction and its very common. u can try Thermage which can sometimes help to tighten up the loose skin or perhaps Liposonix which can also help to tighten
